Hello! I am Ms. LaChapelle and I teach Kindergarten. I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University in 2010, right here in Tacoma. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education and am currently working on my Master's Degree in the English Language Learners Program at the University of Washington Tacoma.
Teaching has always been a passion I wanted to pursue. I truly enjoy working with children and watching them learn and grow throughout the year. I began teaching in Colorado in 2014, in a K-2 Special Education class and then as a Kindergarten teacher. I joined Chambers Prairie in 2019 in the Future Ready Kindergarten program, and now I am a Kindergarten Teacher here at Seven Oaks!
I served in the Army as a Human Resources Officer for five years, where I was stationed in Germany and Colorado. I have a 2-year-old daughter, and we love sweets and the outdoors! We enjoy camping, hiking, water activities, and spending time with family having cookouts, playing board games, and baking.
I know that this year may be different from what we are all used to, but know that I am excited to work and learn alongside you and your student. I am eager to work with technology and use all the resources within our class. I believe in providing a positive and supportive environment with rich and engaged learning! I am here for you and your family. Together we can do this, let's make it a great year!
